Wisconsin has some exciting news — and they’re certainly shooting for the stars during this grand opening. Interested in finding out more?

Wisconsin will soon be home to a brand new art museum, located in Wausau’s vibrant downtown. The Wausau Museum of Contemporary Art will feature works by internationally established artists from coast to coast with a goal to “unleash the regions creative energy and to engage a broad and diverse audience in conversation about how art connects us, allowing us to grow and thrive as a community,” as the museum’s website asserts.

They’re certainly kicking things off right, welcoming established artist Alyssa Monks for the Grand Opening on October 7, 2017. The reception will also showcase the art selected for the 2017 National Juried Art Exhibition with Monks announcing the Best of Show winner — an award that comes with $10,000.

The museum already has a great lineup of exhibitions slated for 2018, including their 2018 National Juried Exhibition, and solo shows with David Shevlino, Samantha French, and Jacob Dhein.
